"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. We worked day and night in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you." 1 Thessalonians 2:8-9

This blog is much more than our family and our crazy antics. After being overseas in Haiti for 4 years we prayed about coming back to the States and just still felt like God was going to use our family overseas...so here we go again. The big move to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and now the school growing and moving to Barbados. We just can't seem to rest until our family can love as many as we can to relationships with Christ. We always feel so blessed to meet the many people we get to serve with overseas, and of course love that you are reading with us as we serve in a new culture!

Attack of the surprise - and a Centipede!

Here she is....Sister Angie.  I can't even describer her well.  Her whole life is about serving truly.  I have never seen anything go on, even if a party is for her, and her not be in the back cleaning, preparing, and washing the dishes.  Here heart is amazing.  We tell our students and try to model what service is....and when I was thinking about this, they have an incredible model watching her each day.

So, it was her birthday and last year she disappeared the whole day, so we could not celebrate.  This year we tried to send her on a trip, but she refused.  So...after church was over we all had it arranged to end early and surprise her with her favorite Brownies.  2 days early, so she could not disappear.    Look at this face!  As we were singing, she kept insisting it was not the right day for her birthday.  Ha Ha! 

The only bad part was the huge centipede that landed on her foot earlier in the day and stung her.  She finally broke down and went to the doctor, since her foot was so swelled and she had a reaction to it.  Thankfully, she is doing better.  This is not the real centipede pictured, but it looked exactly like this one, maybe bigger, though!
